Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter with Self-Test (GFCI)
The National Electrical Code requires Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) protection of receptacles located outdoors, in bathrooms, garages and spa areas. This applies not only to new construction, but also to existing homes. The GFCI circuit interrupter provides protection against overloads, short circuits and ground faults. It detects very low levels of electrical current leakage (ground faults), and acts quickly to shut off power, preventing serious shock.
Why GE Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters with Self-Test?
Self-test functionality is a UL requirement on all GFCI devices commencing in June of 2015. This variant of the GFCI ensures its ground fault circuitry is functioning properly by automatically running diagnostic testing on a periodic basis. Should a problem be detected, the circuit breaker will trip and will need to be replaced.
